To Crushingly Suffer The Unthinkable

But Then To Bounce Back &
Achieve The Impossible

God gets his greatest victories out of seeming defeat

This Is
Bethany Hamilton's
True Story

We All Get Hit in Life ...
Lost Loves, Lost Jobs, Cheated, Deceived,
Accidents, Calamities, Tragedies
Every one Of Us… All 7 Billion Of Us
The Question Though Is… What Do You Do...
When Life Takes A Bite Out Of You???
Do You Get Up and Keep Going… Or
Do You Give Up and Quit???

Bethany Hamilton suffered one of the worst accidents that you can imagine. She was a good Christian Kid who loved the Lord and Loved to surf. She had a bright and promising potential future as a professional surfer… then the Unthinkable Happened.

A 14 foot Tiger Shark rose out of the reef and attacked her. The One Massive Clean bite that it took, sheared through her board and ripped her left arm off. Many a soul would have just fainted and given up and died, but she did not. She started paddling for shore with her right arm and called out for help from her friends. Amazingly she survived.

But What Next?

The Natural Thing Would Be
To Shrink Away Into Obscurity...

But Not This Spunky Kid...
Not Bethany

She Went Back Out... And Got Back Up
She Did What She Could...
And God... Did The Rest

Bethany Hamilton quote, Overcoming Quote, Perseverance Quote

May We All Rise Above The Trials of Life.
Those Waves That Seek To Swamp Us...
Rise And Allow Those Difficulties
To Push Us On To The Great Futures
That God Has For Us All.

Seek Ye First The Kingdom Of God

& All His Righteousness...

Don't Get Down No Matter What Comes

Then Like Bethany...

You Will Ride The Many Waves Of Life

To Be A Winner In The End

PS. This amazingly is one of our most visited pages. In a world where the real importance and greatness in life comes with our connection to God… there are very few recent movies that really show this and show young folks learning to love the Lord. Real life is heartbreak, trials & learning… blended with victories, understanding and acceptance. So many Christian Movies really lack this and sadly many just aren't that interesting.

With that as a back drop let us just say that Soul Surfer has all the Needed and Good Qualities mentioned above. We really hope that if you haven't caught this movie yet... you will. It's a master piece of Modern Christian Cinema.

PPS. We don't mention the above to belittle or condemn other movie efforts. We know many are just doing the best they can with what they've got. We just wish more films had that "ZAP" of reality in them that would be a better witness to the World. Why invest millions of dollars and tons of man hours on a project if it's not going to make... an impact!
